Re: What if Ezri Dax was a male?
I thought the reason the writers went with another female Dax was because if they went with a male Dax, there would have only been one female regular (Kira) on the DS9 cast.
But a male Dax would have been pretty interesting. Worf and Bashir's reaction to him would have been very interesting.
